Bo Jackson performed on both the gridiron and the diamond, popularizing cross-training in the process by sporting the legendary Nike Air Trainer SC and follow-up models. Classic “Bo Knows” campaigns depicted the athlete surfing, playing cricket, and even partaking in competitive horse racing. The latest Air Trainer 3 Premium sources design inspiration from these same ads, repurposing the colors of Jackson’s jockey outfit—dark grey/black-wolf grey-club pink. The theme is kept up with two pixelated logos on the tongue and heel; one picturing a horse and jockey duo and the other depicting his now-retired collegiate number. The Nike Air Trainer III Premium “Bo Knows Horse Racing” is now available at Nike for $130 USD.
